  1. Get a SATA one just to get rid of the nasty IDE cables... and i tend to stick with Sony, Samsung, Lite-on as ive never had an issue with them.
  2. SATA does not give any speed advantage to the drives. However, it is really nice for cables - the SATA cables are much less of a pain than the old ribbon cables. As for which one? Really, it's hard to go wrong right now, but I've always had good luck with Pioneer, Lite-on and LG. That Samsung looks fine too.
